I went a little nuts after Thanksgiving last year. My pantry had far too many cans of pumpkin and cranberry sauce! I made a triple batch of whole wheat pumpkin muffins. My kids will eat them if I put 3 chocolate chips on top, not a bad nutritional trade.
I had an odd amount of batter left in the bowl. I usually bake any extra in a disposable loaf pan instead of making a half sheet of muffins. It's easy to pull a loaf from the freezer for meal deliveries.
